On July 15 2010, McGill University Health Centre (“MUHC”) and Groupe immobilier santé McGill, a partnership of SNC-Lavalin Inc. and Innisfree PFI Secondary Fund LP, announced the financial closure and official signing of a 34-year partnership agreement to design, build, finance and maintain the MUHC's new Glen Campus in downtown Montréal (the “Project”), comprised of an adult hospital, children's hospital, chest institute, cancer centre and research institute together with retail space, vehicle parking areas and a central utility plant, with a combined total area of approximately 217,500 square metres.

The Project is being procured by MUHC, through the government agency Infrastructure Québec as a public private partnership project. The Project constitutes the largest public-private partnership hospital to be built in Canada to date and the biggest P3 project financing to be completed in Québec.

MUHC was represented by its General Counsel and Director of Legal Affairs, Harris Poulis, assisted by Borden Ladner Gervais LLP, with a team that comprised Yves Dubois and Morton G. Gross.
